love sucks

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up You build up all these defenses you build up a whole suit of armor so that nothing can hurt you then one person no different from any other person who will sooner or later (hopefully later) break your heart wanders into your life You give them a piece of your heart They did something dumb one day like kiss you or smile at you and then your life isn't your own anymore Love takes hostages It gets inside you It eats you out and leaves you crying in the starlight so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart It hurts Not just in the imagination Not just in the mind It's a soul-hurt a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart type of pain and you can’t escape it

Love is a feeling expressed in a way that you give something seen or unseen to someone. Love can manipulate one's personality and attitude by simply altering emotions and perspective on life.

power of love

Love is a decision in the eyes, blessed by the heart, subdued by the mind, enrolled by the body, hacked in by the soul. It is predesigned by nature for 2, it is the most deadliest poison ever without a cure, live the wave of and ocean so still yet so powerful, so calm in the eyes but has the power inside of destruction.
—Guest Matthew


Love is like a plant that grows out of a seed but it needs a lot of caring and watering. Love means giving because what we give grows inside us and flowers.

Definition of love

Love can be described in many ways. One of them is that love is the opposite kind of attraction than sexual attraction. Love is a feeling of happy emotions in your heart. Sex is a physical action of lust in your genitals. Once you're in love, there's no way out. Your genitals will be forgotten and left in the dust, because your heart takes over. There is absolutely no connection between love and sex.

Love is everything: It is sharp and it is dull, it kills and it gives life.
—Guest AMAS


No one truly knows what love is but it's a four letter word we all use. I think it's what ever you want it to be and for me it's waking up every morning, going to school, and seeing her and everything she has to offer. If she's with someone else it may hurt, but as long as she's happy.
